Glossary of sports

the sport of climbing mountains or rocks (2006. Dictionary of Sport and Exercise Science. A&C Black Publishers Ltd)

form of upward locomotion where the hands are used for support due to the steepness of the terrain or of the equipment that is to be mastered (mountain climbing). Climbing involves total body movement and serves as an exercise for strengthening the entire body when using climbing ropes and climbing bars within the framework of physical education. Hands and feet are released alternately from the equipment in order to take on a closed position at or around the equipment after gaining altitude. The simplest form of climbing on equipment is climbing up a latter or wall bars, the most difficult form is over-handing. (Herbert Haag & Gerald Haag. 2003. Dictionary. Sport, Physical Education, Sport Science. Kiel, Institut für Sport und Sportwissenschaften)
